I have been told that there are a number of facts that colleges
look at to determine an acceptable student: SAT scores should
be above 1000, unless they want to go to say, Stanford, then look
at 1400, add that to their gpa, class rank, student activities, sports,
clubs
etc, community work,, jobs, here we get points for being from
a small community in a small state since most colleges want
representation from every state. I often wondered why my sons were
sweating honors classses and getting b's to c's when their friends
didn't ever have homework and were getting a's, but look at their
SAT scores--honors classes pay off. Students who are never
challenged in high school absolutely freak out when they get to
college.
